If you have small Children I think its well worth a trip to the Va Aquarium. Being only a Couple at the time we went wasnt very impressive to us, very small and not that much to see. I think they need more interactive activities throughout the Aquarium.

Didn't pay to go into the aquarium this time been there many times before but we always make a point to go by and see the seals in the aquarium. They are so neat and swim right up to the glass...love it!!!!!

I am very pleased that we chose this as something we did while on vacation. We also went to the zoo & this was by far better than the zoo. The walk between buildings was more than expected. But it was a good experience overall.

It is a little pricey for what it offers so we don't come here each time we visit Va Beach. We love it and so do the kids. The monies goes for a good cause so hey. All in all pretty cool.

This small aquarium could use a face lift. Many exhibits had very cloudy water that made it impossible to take pictures and some tanks were empty. We quickly walked through the aquarium to get to the aviary and enjoyed that part of it. Until they make some improvements we wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
